This is a fantastic idea! Lets keep it going. Hopefully some of the better galleries are backed up multiple times in case somebody's computer crashes.

Won't it use up the bandwidth allocation of the brickshelf server quicker if people are redundantly downloading heaps of images for back-up purposes (i.e. more than one person saving the same images)?

Can we keep the discussion in this thread to a minimum so we can keep the list going? Can an Admin split this topic to 'Brickshelf Concerns' or something similar?

I know I got some repeats, I did those last night (up 'til 1:44...), before this existed. I'm working on zizy2, saguesa, squieu, and kashiwa.

MOCpages is automatically backing up images of any MOCs linked off of Brickshelf, so if you've posted most of your work there, I would assume that your files should be safe. Right now, its probably best to be backing up builders who are:

A) extremely talented (great source of inspiration)
B) don't generally interact on English forums (many European/Asian builders' MOCs may not be seen again if we don't back those files up)
C) builders who have unfortunately passed away. In particular, the works of many of these individuals stands a good chance of being lost to the AFOL community.

Do we have confirmation of that? I interpreted Sean's announcement on the site to mean that you can now upload new images to the MOCpages server. I know that MOCpage already housed thumbnails in-house, but linked off-site (e.g. to Brickshelf) for the full-sized images.

Well, if you login to your MOCpages account the following message is displayed:

Your old pages are safe!
MOCpages is automatically saving copies of the brickshelf images you have on your pages. We will store and host the images here. No need to re-create your pages! They will still work after brickshelf.com shuts down on 31-July.

However, if you manually included images in your pages using HTML <img> tags, you will need to save copies of them before Brickshelf closes.


Of course it's probably better to take everything with a grain of salt these days, but given Sean's announcement on Lugnet and the message from MOCpages, I feel a bit more comfortable right now.

I would highly suggest that if there's anything in my Brickshelf gallery you want to download it now. While I will be uploading some of it back online, and I have all of the pictures already on my hard drive, not all of it will be returning, mainly my older MOCs and various nicknacks.
